Bee Continued From Page 1A resents himself to be an active member or veteran of the U.S. Armed Forces. On Wednesday, officers went to Fellowship Missions, 1520 E. Winona Ave., Warsaw, and spoke with an employee who said he received information that Sherburne had used his cell phone in an attempt to organize a drug deal. Sherburne confirmed with an officer that he attempted to organize a drug deal with his phone, accord ing to court documents. He gave officers consent to look through his cellphone. In the contact area of the phone, officers saw a contact labeled "forever my wife," which Sherburne said was his girl friend. As officers scrolled through the text messages with the girlfriend, they found the conversation began Jan. 26 and continued until Jan. 29. In the texts, the girl says she is 14. Sherburne then asks her if she wants to "hook up." She replied she did and where she lives. He then talks about wanting to be there so he can cuddle her and asks her what she's wearing when she comes out of the shower. He then tells her to stimulate herself and think about him having sex with her. She replied she already was. Officers also found that Sherburne was telling the girl he was in the Army Reserves 11 Bravo Infantry and that he is at drill in Indianapolis. Court documents state Sherburne admitted to offi cers he knew that the girl was only 14 and that he sent a video of himself stimulating himself to her in an attempt to persuade the 14 year old to send him photographs of herself. He told officers he believes 12 and 13 year old girls are very attractive and he is attracted more to younger women than older ones. He also admitted he was not and is not in the military and uses the uniform to ben efit himself, according to court documents. Teen Continued From Page 1A conducted about six years ago, but the contamination is not spreading, Skinner said. As a result, the property had some use restrictions placed on it. Grant funding will likely dictate the time frame for removal of the tanks. The city is seeking grant money from the federal Environmental Protection Agency through Michiana Area Council of Governments and will talk with the state in hopes of using money reserved for addressing abandoned gas stations, Skinner said. "It would be our goal to take the building down as soon as possible rather than let it sit there," Skinner said. In addition to an improved entrance with bet ter signage, the park board is eyeing construction of a building near the property that could serve as a green house and visitor center. The greenhouse could be used by those who care for the nearby Warsaw Biblical Gardens and the Gardens of Central Park, Plummer said. Those plans are tentative, Plummer said. City Continued From Page 1A After celebrating its 60th anniversary in 2018, United Way of Kosciusko County says it is launching the most comprehensive strategic planning effort in its history. The goal is to build the framework that will keep United Way at the forefront of Kosciusko County philan thropy for the next 60 years, according to a news release from the organization. A nine member task force has been convened and began work in January. "Challenging ourselves to get better and not taking anything for granted is something the board of directors takes very seriously," said Ted Westerhof, chairman of the board of directors. "Our community is changing, and we have to evolve, too." Kosciusko County is experiencing several national trends. The workforce is getting younger as millennials find their place in the economy. Technology is impacting how choices are made and the speed of expectations. And employees are often commuting further and have a regional perspective. All of this is impacting donors' perspectives, the organ ization believes. Donors are looking for creative solutions to today's most pressing problems, more chances to get involved and quality data to make informed decisions. The public is invited to share their opinions at two events. The first will be Wednesday from 7:30 to 9 a.m. at the Kosciusko County Community Foundation's lower level conference room. The second is Feb. 15 from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the same location. Reservations can be made by emailing Katelyn Blanchard at katelyn@unitedwaykosciusko.org. Task Force members include Westerhof, Adam Turner, Tammy Keirn, Amanda Gould, Heath Simcoe, Randy Polston, Olivia Kmieciak, Matt Boren and Amanda Davis. STAFF REPORT United Way Launches Planning Initiative Honor Flight Northeast Indiana is encouraging all veterans from the Korean conflict to send in their appli cation to participate on a future Honor Flight to Washington. D.C. "The time is now," said Dennis Covert, president of HFNEI. "There are countless veterans from this era who are refraining from complet ing their applications. Whether they feel that some one is more deserving, or the timing hasn't been right, every man and woman who donned the uniform is not only eligible, but deserves to go. You did not have to serve during battle or in theater. Even if you served stateside during your entire enlist ment, you are still fully eligi ble for an Honor Flight." Veterans spend the day in Washington reflecting upon the memorials built in their honor. They share the flight with their peers and a guardian creating and reliv ing memories. They visit seven memorials, take a bus tour around Washington, and receive accolades and grati tude from men, women and children throughout the day. Lt. Col. John Steinbeck, a 40 year Army veteran who served through Korea, said, "I would like to give a few rea sons why Korea war veterans should take the Honor Flight. Tremendous care is given to see that your needs are well taken care of. People you don't even know clap for you both here and in D.C. The Korea War Memorial is breathtaking; men on patrol, every uniform and firearm is totally correct. It was truly a moving sight. At Arlington, you see the graves of men who fought in all wars to make men free, in a beautiful green grass setting. The changing of the guard is con ducted with precision and military correctness. If you have a spark of patriotism in your heart, you will have moist eyes and your cup will run over." To submit an application, go to www.hfnei.org. Honor Flight Urging Korean Veterans To Apply STAFF REPORT WASHINGTON (AP) - President Donald Trump is expected to declare near total triumph over the Islamic State group in Syria in his State of the Union address today, but U.S. defense officials are increas ingly fearful that the mili tants are simply biding their time until the Americans leave the battlefield as planned. IS militants have lost terri tory since Trump's surprise announcement in December that he was pulling U.S. forces out, but military officials warn the fighters could regroup within six months to a year after the Americans leave. A Defense Department watchdog report released Monday warned of just such a possibility. The Islamic State group "remains a potent force of battle hardened and well disciplined fighters that 'could likely resurge in Syria' absent continued counterter rorism pressure," the report from the inspector general said. The top commander of U.S. forces in the Middle East, Gen. Joseph Votel, told a Senate committee today that of the 34,000 square miles of territory that IS once held, it now controls less than 20 square miles. "It is important to under stand that even though this territory has been reclaimed, the fight against ISIS and vio lent extremists is not over and our mission has not changed," Votel, commander of U.S. Central Command, told the Senate Armed Services Committee. "The coalition's hard won battlefield gains can only be secured by maintaining a vig ilant offensive against the now largely dispersed and disaggregated ISIS that retains leaders, fighters, facil itators, resources and the profane ideology that fuels their efforts." Votel said there are between 1,000 and 1,500 IS fighters in the small area they still control in the southern part of the Euphrates River Valley near the Iraqi border. The remainder, he said, have "dispersed" and "gone to ground," suggesting they retain the potential to return. Trump's decision to leave Syria, which he initially said would be rapid but later slowed down, shocked U.S. allies led to the resignations of Defense Secretary Jim Mattis and the top envoy to the anti IS coalition, Brett McGurk. Votel was asked at today's hearing whether he was asked for his advice about a Syria withdrawal before Trump announced his deci sion. "I was not consulted," the general said. The withdrawal will fulfill Trump's goal of bringing troops home from Syria, but military leaders have pushed back for months, arguing that IS remains a threat and could regroup. U.S. policy has been to keep troops in place until the extremists are eradicat ed. Fears that IS fighters are making strategic maneuvers ahead of a U.S. pullout could also fuel criticism that Trump is telegraphing his military plans - the same thing he accused President Barack Obama of doing in Afghanistan. U.S. officials in recent weeks say IS has lost 99.5 percent of its territory and is holding on to fewer than 10 square kilometers of turf in Syria - an area smaller than New York's Central Park. In late November and December that figure had been estimated at between 248 to 372 square miles, according to officials briefed on the matter.
